Bristling with energy, this lively waltz for solo piano surges with huge confidence and presence. Requires great skill from the performer to keep up with the pace. Regarded by some as the first of Chopin's waltzes to be published.

A waltz for solo piano which conjures up images of Paris and popular song around 1900. The title translates into, 'I Want You', and reflects the sentimental nature of the track. A wonderful backdrop for European productions.

A serene start with beautiful melodies produces a sentimental and loving atmosphere. This contrasts with the more upbeat, almost dance-like passage which in turns into a dramatic, powerful and forceful section before returning to a calm ending.

One of Chopin's twenty four preludes which starts very quietly. A note repeats like the pitter-patter of raindrops. A more intense section rises like a heavy storm shower before fading away to leave us with the soft sound of the light raindrops again.

Gymnopodie No. 2 has an aura of sombreness about it. 'Lent et triste', (slow and sad), is the instruction to the player. Very atmospheric with a feeling of calm resignation. Huge amounts of space in the composition for thoughtful reflection.

The second movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata is a contrast to the first movement. This movement is positive, playful and joyful but yet subdued. Lovely light melodies allow the piece to flow along nicely. Piano Sonata No. 14 Opus 27 No. 2.

This Chopin prelude has the nickname, 'Funeral March', although it isn't the tune we associate with his piano sonata No. 2 third movement. However; this is strident and morose with its block chords in a minor key.

A tender start to this lovely piano solo. The middle section rises with increasing emotion before settling down with the piece ending very much as it had started in a calm and peaceful way.
